NGOs launch roadmap for handover of refugee response to Greek Government
More than 2,000 unaccompanied children are on the waiting list for safe shelters in Greece, according to a new report by 12 organisations. The chronic shortage of accommodation for children is just one of the gaps in services that is worsening as the Greek Government prepares to take full control of the refugee response.

As of 6 December, 110 clinically diagnosed cases of diphtheria, including six deaths have been reported, with most cases in the Balukhali makeshift settlement (BMS), located in the larger Kutupalong–Balukhali expansion site. Other cases have been detected in Jamtoli and Thangkhali settlements. Low vaccination coverage amongst the camp population increases their vulnerability to the disease, which is particularly deadly for children. Congestion in sites, unevenly distributed health facilities and poor WASH infrastructure facilitate the spread of the disease, particularly during winter.
Every last hiding place
The objective of the VAS is to provide baseline data to map the basic needs and critical gaps of services in areas of high return and to share the findings with government authorities and partners for better planning and targeting of transition and recovery activities. Wau County was prioritized by the Inter Cluster Working Group (ICWG) in Wau due to the increasing number of returnees observed to be moving from the PoC AA site and collective centres (churches) back to their home areas in Wau County. Ninety-four per cent of IDPs staying at PoC AA are from Wau County itself.
